We are so happy you found our website. We hope you will learn a bit about us and about the Comboni Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus through this site.
We are the members of the Comboni Mission Center community at La Grange Park. As members of the North American Province and the Institute, we are called to live the Comboni vocation and charism at the service of the Church and society here in North America.
We try to do this by contributing to a wider vision of the Church, and to a deepening awareness of the Church’s call to universal mission. Having served as missionaries in other lands ourselves, we have many stories to tell you about the hopes, struggles, and needs of the “poorest and most abandoned” here and throughout the world.
We have a regular weekday liturgy at 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, and during the summer, we like to host “Mission evenings” so that missionary priests visiting from overseas have a chance to tell their story in La Grange Park. All are most welcome!
We hope you will stay tuned to our site, and become “friends” with our Facebook page so you get all of the up-to-date news about events at our center.
If you are wondering how to support or become a part of our work, we invite you to pray for the missions and help promote the Comboni Missionary cause by spreading the word or by making a charitable financial contribution to the Comboni Mission Center. Please feel free to visit with us or call us anytime. All are welcome!
